Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance
Further to the Prime Minister’s briefing this evening and Swim England’s announcement, I understand you will be concerned about the escalating situation with regards to the Covid-19 outbreak. I would like to reiterate that the health, safety and wellbeing of our athletes and members remains our number one priority.
Details of the Swim England announcement can be found here which outlines a number of changes. All competitions organised by the national governing body that are scheduled to be held between now and the end of May have been called off.
At present the Government has not closed schools or restricted school activity and therefore we do not see any reason why G&W ASC should not continue with our training programmes in our own environment within the council guidelines of the facility until such time as either the advice changes or the facilities close.
At the point where training stops, it is the intention of the club to stop fees until training resumes.
We are following both Governmental and Swim England advice and will keep you updated accordingly.
Chairman G&W ASC
